You forgot being brainwashed as a child
@Pulimuli indoctrination = brainwashing
Just two examples off the top of my head:- Religion is used as a form of power to control others - look at extremest groups.- Religion provides comfort and peace during hard times for those that are suffering - the need for faith becomes greater than truth.
Sarcasm? Science is about proving things. And when they are uncertain they don’t pose it off as fact. Science isn’t based on blind faith nor ignorance.
I love when people consider the evidence of science and religion to be comparable
No. Can you explain further?
You asked "Why are humans so confident in beliefs that can't be proven?"I assumed you were referring to religion. I then explained the alternative to not believing in religion is believing in non-existence after death.
Sure, but that doesn't actually answer my question. We have no reason to believe that anything does happen after death. However, as an antitheist, I simply accept that nobody knows what happens. I don't believe one thing or another, i simply accept that there's no evidence to support the idea that there is anything after death, just as there is no evidence that there is nothing after death.
